Welcome to our Lares Trek 4 Days 3 night, after doing the pre arrangements during your briefing the day before, we will collect you early this morning, and head for Patakancha village. This is a Quechua village community, where people keep very much alive all their traditions.
People at Patakancha are using the same principles in doing their homes, from Inca times, as well much of their clothing, the way they work the land with foot ploughs and live off their llamas and alpacas or supplementing their income working as porters. Our visit to this community is meet part of your trekking crew who will take care of your equipment during your Lares Trek 4 Days 3 nights to machu picchu.
At some point we will be leaving the village and get into the andean scenery which is very different from flat terrain. All around us is unique, the grass, Polylepis trees, Llamas, mountains are displaying their glamor. We will be climbing for around one and half hour, until we glimpse the colours emerald and blue together on the ground surface and perceive the beautiful lake Ipsaycocha.
We have crossed our first high pass of Ipsaycocha pass at( 4,600m / 15,456ft) above the sea level and the rest of your hike will be downhill towards campsite (4,200m/13,780ft).
